Say "Hello" to my leetle friend,


No embers here, but perhaps a fairytale beauty.

This purse took 10 years to make.  Check back here soon, where I’ll tell the story.

Looking handsome, able to be loaded with as much as you are can carry. 

Mine currently has pens, glasses, hand cream, lip gloss, tape measures (not one or two or three… but four!), books, flooring samples and paint chips, wallet and make-up pouch, oh – and did I say lip gloss…?

The straps and “frame” of this tote are cut from English Bridle Leather and the panels are hair on hide.  Each panel is different as no two hair growth patterns are identical.  The utility and strength of this beautiful piece can not be over estimated.  


  •    It’s all about the straps.  This tote is meant to tote, maybe not a barge or a bale, but it will carry a bushel.  The straps extend from your (or your husband’s) hand, or shoulder, to the bottom of the bag without interruption.  This way the double weight English Bridle handles transfer the weight of your cargo so that you can all make it home in one piece.
  • With interior pockets for pens, phone, and LIPSTICK(S) in matching hair on hide, not to mention the removable button-in lining, the inside is as attractive as the outside.  The lining is washable, repairable, or even up-dateable as this tote will be your trusty shopping companion for many years to come.
